[laughter] >> those who were disappointed by this outcome, the democrats elated by this outcome -- given the conventional wisdom around this campaign, the president's approval ratings that were barely above 50%, often dipping below it, the unemployment around 8%, gdp growth stock of around 2% -- the conventional wisdom was that should -- that this president should not be reelected. as you take a look at what happened two weeks ago, how do you assess this? >> let me just say first that i made a very good living and politics betting against conventional wisdom. it is a general principle of mine that the conventional wisdom is almost always wrong and it was wrong here. it was wrong here because what we often do in political circles and journalism is that we look at what happened in the last election or pas

to that point. when you talk about the modern media, and remember edward r. murrow in the harvest of shame, and he made a documentary saying look at what happened with the farm workers in this country, and it was the segregated people who said no to segregation and forced the major media to come in. media has always been part of the fight for social justice. this is nothing new. i think that we do have to link the stories, and one of the things that happens is that this horrible thing that happened in newtown, but people forget the hundreds of young people who are killed on the streets of chicago over the last five years, who are mostly african-american and mexican children. what happens in baltimore, 212 murders in a city of 600,000 and where both i and farria come from, andt is up acceptable, and we do have to bridge it for people wanting the guns and the gun control which we can do. if you study the history, you can study the roots off it and figure out the future. >> mitzi miller, one more question before we head off to commercial, if i'm a "jet" reader, and i see this cover, is this a

idea to have armed edwards in school. -- armed guards in school. the n.r.a. said they would train these people with an unlimited budget. but they stop way short of -- yes, video games and violence in our society, kids playing on these video games and the movies and the music. when i was young, we were not allowed to watch "the untouchables," eliot with robert because my parents thought it was too violent. my parents thought. and now we've come to this. there's no reason these guns should be available for sale. they have no place in the sporting arena or no place in the hunting arena and they are good for one thing. so it's high-capacity magazines, the caliber of that and the amount of bullets that you can shoot in a short amount of time, it's only good for one thing. get rid of them and let's meet in the middle. host: tpwhob lake area, pennsylvania. we have more from the news conference with n.r.a. executive director wayne lapierre, and we want to show you what he said about blaming the attention of the media. the media gives to killers and criticizes the lack of a national databa
. the first black republican senator since edward brookes of massachusetts lost the re-election bid in 1978, and the only black senator currently serving. tim scott will be the seventh black senator in the nation's history and on three occasions have african-americaning been elected to the upper chamber. only one time has a blaek senator been both elected and re-elected. the governor is aware and she sounded self-conscious about the governor reerting an eastern american. >> it is very important to me as a minority female that congressman scott earned this seat. he earned this seat for the person that he is. he earned this seat for the results that he has shown. he earned this seat for what i know he's going to do in making south carolina and making our country proud. >> right now i want to bring in atlanta's democratic mayor, founder and president of the center for social inclusion a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting social and economic inequality. and kevin alexander grey. a attorney from south carolina and great to have you here. >> i wish i were an attorney. >> so, tell me thi

's the problem. >> alisyn: it's edward wolf and i said-- interestingly, another little tidbit in this study that he did, which is that for the top 1%, the net worth has skyrocketed, it's gone up 71% for the top 1% you've heard so much about, so the discrepancy between the middle class and the upper echelon is bigger than it's been and that may be what president obama is clinging to in his principle that on those people, it's time to raise the taxes. of course, they're just the 1% and maybe would say the that the 250,000 bar is too low for most of the country. >> dave: as for that proposal, more and more lawmakers from georgia, congressman woodall doesn't think too highly of it, in fact, equates it to nothing. watch. >> this is a giant blank sheet of paper. it's absent of any information whatsoever, because so, too, is the president's proposal for tackling the real economic challenge we have here. the real budget deficits and the real threat to economic superiority in this world, out of control federal spending. of the president of the united states, the president for four yea years, no cred
candidate, at one point, from hillary clinton to barack obama, from john kerry to john edwards, all of them, they all played for their plan with this simple phrase, "rolling back the bush tax cuts." they've been doing it for eight years. so politically, that's why the president has to draw that line in the sand. >> he draws that line in the sand, but harold ford, what happens when republicans, at least a small number of them, go ahead and raise taxes on the top 2% and then turn to the white house and say, okay. now we'll move. and then they have to talk about how they're going to slash spending in medicare, to save medicare, how they'll have to slash spending in medicaid to save medicaid. their political problem on the other side of this tax debate is so much bigger than the republican problem. they're being too clever by half here. >> both sides have complicated hands. and if the democrats, we achieve what the president and some democrats in the senate are asking for in a narrow way around taxes, you're absolutely right. just as an aside on the bush era, this is the first time we didn't go
edward little high school in auburn, maine, and subsequently attended the university of maine where in 1969 she earned a degree in political science. it was also in college that she met peter snowe. peter shared olympia's passion for politics. they married shortly after graduation, and in 1972, peter was elected to the state legislature while olympia went to work as a legislative staffer for maine congressman bill coen. now, the young couple seemed well on their way to building a life together, but in 1973, in the midst of a winter snowstorm, tragedy struck. peter was killed in a car crash. at a still young age, so limb yeah was left to build a life for herself. what could have marked the end of her political aspirations became a new beginning instead. as olympia once put it, she resolved to make a positive out of a terrible negative. she ran for office in the special election held to fill her late husband's seat and won. it was the start of a long and distinguished career in public service. olympia was subsequently re-elected to the maine house in 1974 and elected to the maine sena
can have the opposite effect. nobel economist edward press scott of arizona has found that higher marginal tax rates are the reason europeans work one-third fewer hours than americans. when marginal rates are lower, prosperity flows to other sectors of society, allowing business to create jobs and new products, compete for workers to raise wages and i vest their profits, which can then be lent to other entrepreneurs. everyone gains in a free economy. as john f. kennedy put it, a rising tide lifts all boats. look at what free enpricent pris achieved? millions of new private-sector jobs were created and the stock market soared tripling in value over eight years. the lower tax rates and reduced regulatory burden produce add more robust economy and a more robust economy meant more revenue for government. similar resulted attended the tax rate reductions during the presidency of george w. bush. many policy-makers have forgotten these lessons. in 2008, america's score in the index of economic freedom has declined significantly -- i mean, since 2008, to the point where we are no longer c
